Abstract : The paper contains an analysis of about 1700 liquid-water content measurements made in 1961-1963 during experimental flights through the cloud systems of atmospheric fronts over the steppe portion of the Ukraine. We study data on the liquid-water content, mean temperature, and thickness of different types of frontal clouds as well as data on the properties of liquid-water content distribution as a function of meteorological parameters. An empirical graph is given for computing the mean liquid-water content of Ns and Ns-As as a function of the mean temperature and thickness of the cloud. (Author)
